Etseri, late Jan-early Feb. 2008

It's about time!

Yes indeed, it's taken me a long time to get back online for long enough to post some more images to the old blog. Here are some from Etseri, as promised. Bottom to top:

Sergo's little helper on the hay-round

A local friend after an hour's walk through a showfall

Shorts of wood

Etseri winter scenery

Valya the Valiant, Etseri and region's unsung heroine, medicine woman, on her rounds. The intravenous drip, hanging from a clothes-horse (is that what you call it?) saved the man's life: he was severely dehydrated after the runs, and we rode on horseback 2 hours to reach him.

The shortest watchtower in Svaneti, near Pari, and only a few km from the tallest, which is in Etseri and on this blog already.
